A strange mix of happy and sad I’ve never felt before…
Try loving, and praying, and preaching, and crying for souls…
And being loved by them, and then saying goodbye knowing there’s a good chance you will never meet again on this side of the gates of pearl.
Oh, I know.
I’ve done it before too. But this time was different.
A part of me is still in Australia.
And that part of me will never come home.
Maybe it was relinquishing claims to those hearts and hands
to trust them to the grip of One infinitely stronger and wiser…
Or maybe it was just realizing how small I am…
Or maybe it was something else…
Whatever the case, it makes my heart burn for Heaven.
Oh, let’s be faithful dear friends…
I want to meet you on the other side.

Brother Sean… your words and thoughts are so touching, and resonate strongly with my own heart as well!
"I want to meet you on the other side." Amen, may we be found faithful!
Missing you from down under,
Your Brother in Christ,

Sweet post! I really enjoyed meeting your family… and the camps. Only thing is, I'd love to see MORE pictures. 🙂
Please make sure Josh sends those cds too!

Welcome back to the States, Sean! Glad your time in Australia was blessed!
Thanks for posting the pics, especially the one of the koala! I think koalas are one of the cutest animals ever! 🙂 I wonder why Australia is so full of interesting creatures…
See you in less than a few weeks…

That's awesome that you got to go to Australia. I think there will be a lot of people having reunions under the tree of life one day soon. I'm so excited! 🙂
